“Guardians: Spirits of Protection,” a poignant exploration of the
creative relationship between tragedy and design, is now at the
UC Davis Design Museum through April 24.
The installation showcases a series of sculptures created by
design professor emerita Ann Savageau. Made from found
objects and flotsam that washed up on the beach coming from
unknown places, the sculptures created by Savageau are composites
of the disparate castoffs — in response to the tragic events in
her life and to the pandemic.
Kaylani J. McCard was awarded the 2021 Savageau Award for a
Master of Fine Arts design student on June 10 during a virtual
opening celebration of the annual Arts and Humanities Graduate
Exhibition at UC Davis. The show is accessible through the
Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art website until
Public Scholarship and Engagement recently announced their
2021 Community Engaged Learning Faculty Fellows. Among the
recipients are Design faculty members Assistant Professor
Beth Ferguson and Assistant Professor Thomas Maiorana.
Design alum Adam Flint Taylor (M.F.A., design, ‘19) has worked
featured in a current exhibition at the Southern Utah Museum of Art
(SUMA) now through March 13. The museum is located on the campus
of Southern Utah University (SUU) in Cedar City.
In anticipation of the uncertainty of travel and other
possible matters, also to serve the students who cannot travel
outside of the country for any reasons in a long run, the campus
Global Learning Hub and Career Center developed “Global Virtual
Internships” parallel to traditional summer abroad
